About Me

In my 31 years of practice as a criminal defense attorney I have strived to make myself accessible to my clients.  Being charged with a criminal offense is a life altering experience and my clients rely on my experience and expertise to get them through the system.  I am available to meet and talk to my clients as needed.  I understand what my client is going through and if I can make it a little easier on the client and their family by providing answers to their questions, then I have done my job.
